Engineers right cruise ship off Isola del Giglio
Here at Live Like an Italian, we were thrilled to read the news this week that engineers have managed to right the shipwrecked cruise ship Costa Concordia off the coast of the Isola del Giglio.
The island — here’s the Wikipedia entry for Isola del Giglio — is one of the Tuscan coast’s best-kept secrets and one of its most popular seaside vacation spots for tourist in search of undeveloped coastline.
It’s beauty is simply breath-taking and the island’s restaurants, hotels, and other services retain that 1960s small-town feel.
The island is also a favorite spot for scuba divers (see below).
What a thrill to learn that the hazardous shipwreck — a threat to the island’s ecosystem and an eyesore — has finally been righted again!
